Senate Advising

The Office for Student Engagement staff enjoys a close relationship with the Reed student Senate. We attend Senate meetings, meet with Senate leadership and work with the Treasury.

Student Senate Fall 2022

The student Senate plays an influential role on Reed's campus. Senate is the voice of the students: its members fund student organizations, participate in campus policy-making, and work with the staff members to improve the quality of student life. If you would like to get involved or learn more about the election process, email or a current senate member.

Student Opportunity Subsidy Committee

SOS Committee chair



Members TBA

Reed Student Body Senate Bylaws mandate that the interest earned from the Student Body Endowment shall go towards projects which broadly benefit the student body. A student committee, chaired by a student senator, and made up entirely of students, oversees the SOS Committee. The Fund serves students by providing direct funding to cover expenses and allow students of Reed College to continue their college career as uninhibited as possible. Whether this means paying for a better camera to pursue your hobby, obtaining a HEPA filter, or getting headphones that provide you with the full experience of your favorite artist, the Student Opportunity Fund will try to provide all students with the opportunity to have a college experience unabated by inequality.
